Welcome! I love to write, and I love sharing what I write with my readers. I vary my style as much as I can-posting events, creative non-fiction, prose and poetry and the occasional video. Enjoy!

Mark the 10th Anniversary of the Grassy Narrows Blockade-

No Logging! No Mercury! Mark The 10 Year Anniversary of the Grassy Narrows
Asubpeeschoseewagong Anishinabek Blockade!

On December 2, 2002, two young Anishnaabwekwe from Grassy Narrows
Asubpeeschoseewagong went out to the woods in the snow to start what is now
one of the longest running indigenous blockades in the recent memory of
Turtle Island. Please join us to mark a decade of struggle and achievement,
and remember the work still to be done.

10 Years of the Grassy Narrows Blockade: A Sacred Fire at Queen's Park
Sunday, December 2nd, 2pm-6pm
Queen's Park Front Lawn
Sacred Fire, Snacks Served, Children's Games, and Community Gathering

The community continues to maintain a moratorium on clearcutting in their
traditional territories. For many years now, despite the ongoing threat of
logging, grandmothers, mothers, trappers and youth have held off some of
the world's largest paper corporations. The community has also taken the
Ontario government to task for inaction on the ongoing effects of mercury
poisoning on their families and ecosystems.

Many of you, your families, your organizations, your communities, have
supported their efforts in the last decade. The Sacred Fire at Queen's Park
Lawn on December 2nd, 2012, is a great way to show your ongoing support and
to mark an important anniversary in the fight to protect Indigenous rights
and the water, air, land, and creatures that we all depend on.
